Introduction

The Endangered Giant Pandas Giant pandas are an endangered species normally found in China. The main reason that they are dying out is lack of food. Giant Pandas consume between 26 - 83 pounds of bamboo a day, and it doesn't grow quickly. Bamboo forests have been demolished as room for factories and more land, destroying more and more food for the pandas. Many pandas have been found dead from starvation as they have not found a bamboo forest in time. Another problem is that female pandas are only reproductive in the mating season for a period of 5 days and male pandas are picky, few pandas mate in this season. ...read more.

Another problem is that female pandas are only reproductive in the mating season for a period of 5 days and male pandas are picky, few pandas mate in this season. In 2005 China had over 50 panda reserves, protecting more than 4,000 square miles and over 45% of remaining giant panda habitat. Today 61% of pandas are under protection in reserves, roughly 980. To help save the pandas more bamboo forests should be created, and China should focus on having all pandas protected. Giant pandas are an endangered species normally found in China.

    It has to contain a substantial amount of different species in both areas of trampled and non-trampled land, to enable me to compare them. The areas have to be maintained by the people who visit the park, the non-trampled area has not been interfered with by the park rangers and the trampled area is not artificially trampled (i.e.
